OK, got a problem. I just purchased an HPE ProLiant ML10 Gen9 system to setup a RAID10 NAS. I have four disks in the machine and a 16GB USB stick on the motherboard USB port for the OS. I tried every release starting with 3.9.1 working backwards to get it to install. 3.8.15 worked like a charm, except it does not see the NIC. No big deal, I’ll upgrade with the 3.9.1 media later. The thing is, I cannot figure out how to upgrade it. The only thing I have done since installing is to tune the ext4 filesystem (why is this not JFFS/JFFS2 for my USB install?) to run better on USB flash. I did this by changing the mount parameters to “defaults,noatime,data=writeback”. Beyond that, nothing has changed.
So how do I upgrade? I read another post here stating that the newer Rockstor images have a bug on HP systems due to CentOS. This was causing me to get an error along the lines of “/dev/root no such device” after booting. Gentoo runs FINE on this system, but it would be high maintenance for a NAS, so I am trying to avoid that.
